Dolly Parton has millions of fans all over the world, but apparently her hubby isn’t exactly one of them. In an interview “Good Morning Britain” Dolly shares that Carl Dean doesn’t really love her music, and has only seen her perform live on a couple of occasions.
“He's not necessarily one of the biggest fans of my music," she said. "He's proud of me and he loves that I love what I do but ... It's a touchy subject. I'm like his little girl and he worries about that."
As for his musical tastes, she notes, "He likes hard rock, he likes Led Zeppelin and bluegrass music, so my music is somewhere in between," adding, "He doesn't dislike it, but he doesn't go out of his way to play my records, let's put it that way."
- The couple has been married 53 years, and she says the secret to their relationship is, “The fact that we like each other, we respect each other, we've always had a good time," adding, "He's crazy and I'm crazy. We laugh a lot and I think that's the healthiest and most precious part of our relationship."
